I completely agree that I should have stuck with the M3, but I got caught up in the chase for the perfect car. I'm not proud of that, but it happened. It cost me a lot of money that I would like to have back. The upside is I got to drive some pretty cool cars.

Wow. Thank you for such an honest answer. I totally respect your reasoning and in many ways I can identify with your dilemma.

Take solace in that there are few enthusiasts who have been able to avoid an upside down deal here and there. It's one of the distinctions between a car consumer and a car enthusiast. We have the desire and the luxury to follow our passions every now and then.
